Marware Accent case for iPhone, iPod touch full review
The Marware Accent is a chic, flip-top style case compatible with the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch. Available in a range of attractive colours, the style, with a subtle decorative motif, is bling without being over the top and reasonably priced. The glossy patent leather outside is matched by a soft tactile inside, which should protect your iPhone or iPod from any minor bumps and scrapes. A modest use of Velcro helps keeps everything in place on your travels.
Despite the fashionable looks, the Marware Accent feels surprisingly solid, helped by elasticised sides which ensure a tight reliable fit, while a lengthy front flap encloses and protects the iPhone or iPod touch when closed. Like many flip-top style cases, we found accessing the corners of Apple's touchscreen on the iPhone and iPod touch a little tricky and actually removed it during a bout of gaming, the protective ridge causing a small barrier between you and the action. You also need to press firmly to access the iPhone or iPod touch controls, and the case may prove a little stiff for some. The Marware Accent case comes with a clear screen protector and cleaning cloth and is available from retailers including Play.com.
